new to asterisk

Posted:Mon 10 of Oct, 2011 (22:29 UTC)
Please, help me. i am new to asterisk and i am using FreePbx. i don't mind using cli shell ( im new to linux as well, but i like to use commands 'cause it is a learning process. ). Anyway, i have three issues:

1. i am not able to send voicemail using email. i have postfix installed but i have not configured it ( i dont mind using sendmail ). Is it true that i dont need a registered domain ( eg. Godaddy) ? Regardless, i have a registered domain and email account with go daddy and i created a mailbox (voicemail@mydomain). but i didn't go any further. can someone please send instructions.

2. i have two different offices ( not related to each other, and will probably have two more) connected to my server, and i would like to use extension numbers starting at 101,102,103.... how can i make it so different offices have same extensions. For example: office 1 has a desk with a sip extension 101 and office 2 also has a sip extension 101, is it possible ? Also, how can i prevent extensions on office 1 from calling extensions on office 2 and so on.

3. Im using a netgear router. I have a feeling that's not a good equipment. What kind of router it is recommended for having multiple remote sip extensions ( about 20 to 30 extensions) connected to my server.

Im running centos free PBX latest version. Sorry i am not sure how to post more information from my system here. Please let me know if you need more information and how to get it from my system.

thank you in advance !
